Using the Contently API

Modified on Thu, 07 Dec 2023 at 09:49 AM

Build your own custom integration with Contently's API to seamlessly incorporate your content into your chosen CMS.  Please note, the Contently content can be pulled out but content cannot be pushed into the Contently platform through this API.

If you're building a Custom CMS integration, please follow these instructions instead.

Follow these steps to set up a Contently API integration for your publication:

Note: You will need Admin privilegies on the account to perform these actions.

1. Accessing Integration Settings: Log in to Contently and go to the Integrations page in your Publication settings.

2. Select Publications: Click "All publications" in the dropdown to view all integrations for your organization.

3. Add Contently API Credentials: Click "Add Integration" to add Contently API credentials to your publication.

4. Integration Naming: Enter a distinct name for your integration to easily identify it among others.

5. Publication Selection: Choose the publications you want to link with this integration; it can be shared across multiple publications. Click "Save."

6. API Key Generation: Upon saving, we'll generate your API key. A link to our API documentation will be provided, and the details will be emailed to you for reference.

7. Getting Started:  Access our Contently API Documentation here to kick-start your integration process.

Note: Your new integration is now visible on the Integrations Page in Contently. Manage and edit your integration settings, and access the installation guide and API key conveniently from this page.
